THERE are few people who don’t enjoy a hearty pie – but for those looking for something a little lighter to bake as part of The Star’s Great Pie and Peas Up campaign, a Sheffield chef has devised a low-fat recipe perfect for calorie-counters.
The campaign is being launched to fund a new inpatient unit at St Luke’s Hospice, and The Star has pledged to raise £100,000 to fund one of 14 single rooms.
Today’s cut-out-and-keep chicken pie recipe – the second of six this week – comes from Nick Wilkes, head chef at the hospice in Whirlow.
Readers are asked to host pie and pea suppers anytime in March, asking guests for donations in return. A £10 minimum donation is suggested.
People can bake their own pies or simply buy them in, and everyone who registers receives a special pack with invitations, a poster and place mats.
